A Friend for Einstein: The Smallest Stallion - Charlie Cantrell & Dr. Rachel Wagner



Released April 2011

Disney/Hyperion

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Children love stories about animals and this true tale about a little stallion born to two miniature horses will definitely make an impression on young readers.

Einstein was so small that he wasn’t able to play with the other miniature horses. The little fellow was so lonely that he tried to make friends with a range of creatures like kittens, geese, a rabbit and even a turtle. Unfortunately, none of them were interested in being Einstein’s friend.

But then, just when he is all but ready to give up and accept the fact that no one would play with him, Einstein comes across Lilly. The two bond immediately and the dog, who is about the same size as the little horse, is more than willing to be Einstein’s companion.

Based on a true story of an actual miniature horse, this picture book is illustrated with color photos of Einstein and all the animals he encounters. No bigger than a large stuffed toy, Einstein will gallop into your heart and you’ll enjoy multiple readings of this special book with your child.
